I'd been going so well since graduation - gradually covering more and more ground in my 30 minute runs ..... and then came tonight. First I had something like a shin splint but it seemed to ease only to be replaced by what felt like a really tight and painful muscle in my calf. On the basis that I'm supposed to enjoy this and don't therefore subscribe to the 'no pain no gain' theory, I stopped after about 12 minutes and walked the rest of my route. That was a bit wimpy and possibly presented no great advantage as it was painful to walk and might have been no worse had I kept running! I've only been running since May and wonder whether, in the cooler evenings, does it take longer than Laura's 5 minute brisk walk to warm up? I know that rubbish runs are inevitable but could do with a bit of blogger sympathy and reassurance to cheer me up!!
